When you’re in the online marketing world, whether as an outright internet marketing niche or as a network marketer who networks online (this applies to offline marketing too), personal branding is something a great majority of us should be doing. The question is what are you attracted to? When you go to an offline networking event you are likely to see several people around who will have the message “buy my stuff” or “join my business” and yet there is one that says Join Me. Which is the ONE that will tweak your curiosity?
My thanks to Mark Harbert for these tips. I found them inspiring and something that resonated with me a lot. Question is have you made a decision? I know that it took me a while to make a decision to draw a line in the sand EVERY day and there would be NOTHING that would get in my way. The three tips based on decisions were something that actually happened to me. I like to “tell it as it is” and rather than base things all on psychology, I base things on my experience and offer tips according to those experiences.
One of the things that I have heard conversations about recently especially with the financial situation as it is, tends to be about the subject money is short. One conversation I happened to hear was when I was in the doctor’s waiting room where two gentlemen were talking about people who were buying extravagant things and questioning why it is being said that money is short.
When you’re starting out in your business online, it’s very easy to get burdened with too many things. This can lead to overwhelm and confusion, which is something that we all need to avoid. One great way to make sure you progress and deal with this is make sure that, out of the many marketing methods there are out there, you choose just ONE and get good at it and become a true expert in that method.
As I pointed out in part 1, there are basically 2 ways to look at commitment and consistency in business:
- Customer / Prospect commitment and consistency to buy or join you and…
- Personal commitment and consistency in your own business.
Part 1 dealt with the customer / prospect angle. Now it’s time to look at the personal angle to see how this psychology can help you to progress.
When you have you own business it’s vital that you get things done and keep your discipline. One of the best things I heard the other day was to think like a champion. Why is that? Because a champion does MORE behind the scenes when nobody is watching than when in front of a crowd. Naturally, they perform BETTER when in front of a crowd, but the self motivation is there to get the success.
It can be a lonely time when you work at home taking the steps you want to so that you can reach your goals, but it’s also very tempting to have a rest sometimes and then you could fail to get something done that may one day be the one thing you should have done that will see you progress towards those goals.
It’s surprising these days how many people have issues about all sorts of things in life and business. If you are in business of any kind, but especially in the home business arena it’s important that you stop playing the blame game.
More and more often people are looking for someone to blame for anything that seems to go wrong, whether it’s the government, the bank or any other individual or organization they can place the blame on instead of looking at the situation in the correct perspective.
